new gardener unsure what's wrong with Tomatoe plant

chrissieSJune 6, 2014

All my plants bottom leaves are yellow. Recently we have had some great weather mixed in with some cold rainy days. This is day 7 of being transplanted. All my plants are still blooming and appear to be producing fruit. This is my first garden so I'm unsure how to identify and correct the issue. Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Could you post a photo please (and you might want to post it on the Growing Tomatoes forum here).

Yellowing of lower leaves can be caused by several things but the most common is over-watering.

However I'm concerned when you say it has only been transplanted for 7 days but is blooming and producing fruit. Could you clarify that as it would be very stressful for a 7 day old transplant to be blooming much less have fruit on it.

If it already had blooms and fruit on it when you transplanted it then most would have removed them before transplanting it to reduce the transplanting stress.

Sometimes the bottom leaves will yellow due to age. How old are the plants?
